Paper and Pie in Bengaluru offers a contemporary menu, great coffee and a dedicated podcast room

Paper and Pie in Bangalore

INDIRANAGAR HAS NO LACK of chic cafes that offer great coffee and Instagram-worthy food. But the recently opened Paper and Pie is different from the rest by focusing on becoming the best space to work. Located on a 100-foot road, it has a quiet space dedicated to recording podcasts, a conference room for 8 to 10 people and well-lit cozy corners. And of course, a menu with some contemporary classics doesn’t hurt either.

The design and aesthetic of Paper and Pie is minimalist, soothing and welcoming. Spread over two floors, the cafe has accents of clean whites, creamy browns and pops of green. When we visited them, on a Saturday afternoon, we had a quick tour of the place (and had a look at the pastries on display) and sat down with our coffee. It was a typical Bengaluru monsoon afternoon so we opted for a hot Cortado. The caffeine kick was just what we needed. We started with the soups of the day — a mushroom soup and a chicken minestrone soup. What stands out about these tasty soups is the freshness of the products. The manager, Wilfred Mario, informed us that all of their greens are grown hydroponically.

Smell the beet
Another dish where the product was the hero was beet tartare. Diced beetroot was tossed with olive oil, toasted walnuts and watercress, and topped with creamy feta which balanced out the whole dish. The wild mushroom risotto at Paper and Pie is a must, we think. Traditional arborio rice is cooked in white wine until creamy and comforting. The garnish of mushrooms, burnt garlic and truffle oil adds an extra touch to the dish.

French connection
The next dish on our table was a traditional French classic – lamb bourguignon. The lamb was slowly braised in a red wine broth and simmered with root vegetables and wild mushrooms. The dish had the right balance of flavors and paired well with the rice pilaf it was served with. It was time to choose the desserts and we strolled over to the display again and chose the dish of the day. We wanted it to be classic, so we opted for a Belgian nut brownie and a slice of blueberry cheesecake. We asked for the brownie to be slightly reheated so it was gooey and delicious. The tangy and sweet blueberry compote on the cheesecake won us over. Even if you’re not a coffee lover, visit Paper and Pie for the delicious food and the laid back vibe and vibe.
